The Traveling Merchants Project

Posted by Community | 2015 Oct 14 10:51 -0400 GMT
This time of year is full of candy-induced excitement and frightful practical jokes, and almost nothing is more exciting (or scary) than the traveling merchants and their prices! Stock up and get your items before these weary travelers vanish once more!

Several popular items have also made their return, including Darkness Falls Weapons and the Midwinter Frozen Medal of Honor.

Players can find the merchants at the below locations. Happy Shopping!

In Albion: Just outside of gates of Castle Sauvage in Camelot Hills
In Midgard: Just outside of Svasud Faste in the Vale of Mularn
In Hibernia: Just outside of Druim Ligen in Connacht

The merchants will remain through the 28th of October.

  • (Pendragon Only) Astral Weapons will no longer have effects attached to them.
  • (Pendragon Only) Albion's Entropic and Somatic Legendary Longbows will now appear in the Fletching tradeskill window.
